Photos of the Day

October 28 - San Diego

Jeannine of Yachtfinders/Windseakers in San Diego sent us these photos of the view from their marina on Shelter Island and from Harbor Island. Taken on Sunday morning, they show clearly - well, clear is probably the wrong word.

Monday, at 12:44 PST. The Baja Ha-Ha fleet would have been in the vicinity of the Mexican border, and would need to get past the fire near Ensenada to get fresh air.

Monday, around ten in the morning. Winds out of the east-northeast have been blowing the smoke well out into the Pacific.
